My experience of the whole thing is brilliantly encapsulated in the words that Jesus speaks in the movie, 'this course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost'.
Lake Delton, WI (Vocus) September 8, 2009
Labor Day 2008 marked the release date for the much anticipated independent documentary, "A Course In Miracles Unleashed: A Direct Encounter with Jesus Christ In The Evolution and Enlightenment of The Human Species.” With a title like that, no one knew what to expect, but curiosity abounded – enough curiosity to create a traffic bottleneck at the movie's website.
Today, one year later, DVD sales are steadily increasing, the film has been translated into five languages, is being re-edited for television and has been seen in over 30 countries around the world.
The popularity of the film is due largely to the fact that it is quite literally A Course In Miracles in action. In the documentary, the singular process of awakening to enlightenment is seen through the personal experiences of about 120 men and women, who though from vastly different backgrounds, races, professions, and national origin, are united by a single desire and yearning for Truth. The transmutation of that yearning into the passion of enlightenment through the guidance of Jesus Christ in A Course In Miracles, is the subject of the movie.
According to fledgling filmmaker, Jubi Onyeama, “the fact that we were even able to make this movie is in itself a miracle. Not one member of the crew or production team had any experience in film-making, we had no script, no plan, no money and no idea! However, I was directed by Jesus every step of the way. Everything that was needed for the completion of the project, had already been provided-- we had in A Course In Miracles, the greatest script ever written, and in the drama of our enlightenment, the greatest story ever told. In a particular sense, the film was a by-product of a much bigger process that was occurring in me.”
“My experience of the whole thing is brilliantly encapsulated in the words that Jesus speaks in the movie, 'this course was sent to open up the path of light to us, and teach us, step by step, how to return to the eternal Self we thought we lost'.”
Onyeama expressed her absolute confidence in the truth of Jesus' speech in the movie, “I take the journey with you. For I share your doubts and fears a little while, that you may come to me who recognize the road by which all fears and doubts are overcome. We walk together. I must understand uncertainty and pain, although I know they have no meaning. Yet a savior must remain with those he teaches, seeing what they see, but still retaining in his mind the way that led him out, and now will lead you out with him. God's Son is crucified until you walk along the road with me.”
“My resurrection comes again each time I lead a brother safely to the place at which the journey ends and is forgot. I am renewed each time a brother learns there is a way from misery and pain. I am reborn each time a brother's mind turns to the light in him and looks for me. I have forgotten no one. Help me now to lead you back to where the journey was begun, to make another choice with me.”
The anniversary celebration of the release of A Course In Miracles Unleashed will continue through Labor day with private and public screenings of the film at various Course in Miracles centers around the world.
